The Punisher vs. the NYPD. Nobody wins.

    As I mentioned previously, this issue was fantastic because of the way that it connected three characters through very similar experiences. It is interesting to see that although the characters are different, their motivations are different, they act out very similarly when they lose someone or something very close to them. It's a very powerful issue and feels really dense when you read it. It's paired with some pretty incredible art, too, so if you're a Punisher fan you really can't go wrong. I don't recommend reading this issue without at least checking out the previous one as I feel they really go hand in hand. Read Full Review

    With smooth visual continuity and smart composition, I haven't dug the Punisher this much since Jerome Opea drew it. Hardcore action, hardcore fun. Read Full Review

    Although it will be difficult to see Rucka leave The Punisher, we can hope that the next writer has noted the fan response to this iteration of the character. I will miss Rucka and Checchetto very much- this has been one of the best books Marvel has been putting out. There is still War Zone to look forward to and then we will just have to see where FrankCastle goes next. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Grant McLaughlin Sep 9, 2012

    Greg Rucka and Marco Checchetto's Punisher has been one of the best books coming out of the Marvel offices this past year. Frank Castle's actions and his world have been depicted through a serious lens that does not ignore the consequences of his deeds, and the story has been better for it. It will be a sad day when Rucka's run on the character ends with the Punisher: War Zone miniseries - a day made all the sadder by Checchetto's absence. Read Full Review

    Oh, and mega shout-out to Assistant Editor Ellie Pyle for sticking by the epic Punisher Beard in the letters column. And, guy who wrote that letter, you need some schoolin' in the amazingness of beards. Read Full Review
